Book Reviews of My Life as a Banker: A Life worth Living

Review by Hannah Howe [Five Stars]

My Life as a Banker
By Fifty Sheds of Books on July 7, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition

My Life As A Banker is a fascinating, intimate story. The author has an engaging writing style that draws you into the story and you feel as though she is talking directly to you, the reader. There is a nice balance between the professional and the personal and while I found the professional aspects rewarding, the highlight for me was reading about the author's interesting life.

The social history aspects of the book also fascinated me, particularly the descriptions of life in Trinidad and I would image that this memoir will serve as an important document for social historians in years to come.

This might sound strange to say about a book with banker in the title, but the author demonstrates quite vividly that there are far more important things than money in life.

It was interesting to see how banking was in another country, than the United States. Being a banker myself, I found it interesting, and could relate to several tasks that are mentioned. I like the way her family was woven through the story.
